Serving beaumont, lumberton, houston + austin and sourounding areas


Hey friends, I’m Emily, a passionate photographer based out of Lumberton, Texas - but love to travel! I love capturing authentic moments and want my images to speak to the souls that are free spirited and ready to push aside posed, cookie cutter photography. I got tired of boring photos and wanted to create something out-of-the-box, fun, and extraordinary. And so, here we are, one of the top wedding and portrait photographers in Southeast Texas, because what we provide is truly unique.

At Emily Michelle Photography, we just love, love. My passion is capturing my clients connection in their photos - wether it be with your family, your fiance, or your children, I live for those sweet, unposed moments. We don’t pose, we play. We love, we snuggle, and we laugh. If you want a gallery full of super posed, stiff, all looking at the camera and smiling perfect images…. don’t hire me, ok? I’ll cry.

But, if you are here because you truly value quality photography and are ready to invest in memories and art that will last a lifetime, let’s do this thang!




“The Emily Michelle Photography Team was AWESOME! They captured so much of our special day that we didn’t even notice until we got all of our pictures back. It was the best investment ever! I definitely recommend them - they were very helpful on the day of the wedding too!” - Maria

“At the engagement session she made us feel so comfortable and was so easy going. At the wedding, she blended in and all of my guest enjoyed her. You couldn’t tell she didn’t belong! The pictures she took came out perfect and I’ll love these memories forever.” -Pamela

“I just LOVE her! As a photographer and a person - she is seriously the nicest and sweetest human being. All of my guests felt comfortable asking her to take pictures and she got a ton of candid moments, which is exactly what we wanted. She captured our day perfectly and she got us the images back so fast! She didn’t miss anything the whole night and I swear she burned a million calories from running around. She was responsive the entire time leading up to the wedding (about a year) and we were so lucky to have her as out photographer. She is truly talented and I will HIGHLY recommend her to anyone I meet!” - Alyssa

“When I started searching for wedding photographers, I wanted the best. I am so picky and couldn’t settle on anything. When I saw Emily’s work, I immediately knew I wanted her to shoot our wedding. We even moved the date of our wedding so we could have her! I have zero regrets, she did amazing! Our pictures are gorgeous, she was quick and responsive and never left us feeling forgotten about, she is very instructive on posing and captures everything. It was important to me to trust my wedding photographer with all the horror stories I hear, and I trust Emily 100%!” - Katelin
